Saskatoon, Saskatchewan - TheNewswire - November 10 , 2020 - UEX Corporation (TSX:UEX) ("UEX" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that due to strong investor demand, it has entered into a revised agreement with Red Cloud Securities Inc. ("Red Cloud") as lead underwriter and sole bookrunner and Sprott Capital Partners as co-underwriter (collectively, the "Underwriters"), to increase the gross proceeds of the previously announced bought-deal private placement (the "Offering") from C$4,000,000 to C$5,000,000. The minimum gross proceeds from the sale of units of the Company (the "Units") has been increased from C$1,000,000 to C$1,500,000, with the remaining balance to be comprised of the sale of any combination of Units or flow-through common shares of the Company (the "FT Shares", and when combined with the Units, the "Offered Securities"). The terms of the Offered Securities remain unchanged.

As part of the revised agreement, the Company has granted the underwriters an over-allotment option, exercisable up to 48 hours prior to the closing date, to purchase for resale additional Offered Securities in any combination of Units and FT Shares at the offering prices to raise additional gross proceeds of up to C$1,000,000. In the event that the over-allotment option is exercised in full, the aggregate gross proceeds of the revised Offering will be C$6,000,000.

The net proceeds raised from the sale of Units will be for the exploration and development of the Company's projects in Saskatchewan and for general working capital purposes. Proceeds from the sale of FT Shares will be used to incur "Canadian exploration expenses" as defined in subsection 66.1(6) of the Income Tax Act and "flow through mining expenditures" as defined in subsection 127(9) of the Income Tax Act ("Qualifying Expenditures"). Such proceeds will be renounced to the subscribers with an effective date not later than December 31, 2020, in the aggregate amount of not less than the total amount of gross proceeds raised from the issue of FT Shares.

The Offering is scheduled to close on or about December 2, 2020 and is subject to certain conditions, including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary regulatory and other approvals, including the approval of the listing of the common shares and the FT Shares distributed under the Offering on the Toronto Stock Exchange (the "TSX"). Resale of the common shares and the FT Shares distributed under the Offering will be subject to a hold period of four months and one day following the closing date of the Offering.

This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy any of the securities in the United States. The securities have not been and will not be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "U.S. Securities Act"), or any state securities laws and may not be offered or sold within the United States or to or for the account or benefit of a U.S. person (as defined in Regulation S under the U.S. Securities Act) unless registered under the U.S. Securities Act and applicable state securities laws or an exemption from such registration is available.
